Undergraduate Travel Grants

Joint Mathematics Meetings, January 3-6, 2024


The American Mathematical Society (AMS) and Pi Mu Epsilon (PME) are offering Undergraduate Student Travel Grants to JMM 2024 for a limited number of students who are presenting in the following JMM sessions.

Applicants to both programs must apply via this online application. Applications from PME members will be forwarded to PME for funding consideration.

AMS grants are funded in part by the National Science Foundation (NSF); PME grants are funded in part by the National Security Agency (NSA).

To be eligible for consideration for a AMS Undergraduate Travel Grant, applicants must:
  • Submit an abstract for an AMS-SIAM Special Session on Research in Mathematics by Undergraduates and Students in Post-Baccalaureate Programs; a Pi Mu Epsilon Contributed Session; or another Special or Contributed Sessions at JMM through the AMS abstract submission portal no later than Tuesday, September 12, 2023, or 
  • Submit an abstract for a PME poster session through the AMS abstract submission portal no later than Tuesday, September 26, 2023;
  • Complete the application for the travel grant, including abstract number, no later than Tuesday, October 17, 2023 (11:59 p.m. ET); and
  • Be enrolled as a full-time undergraduate in a U.S. institution.
To be eligible for consideration for a PME Undergraduate Travel Grant, applicants must:
  • Submit an abstract for a Pi Mu Epsilon Contributed Session at JMM through the AMS abstract submission portal no later than Tuesday, September 12, 2023, or
  • Submit an abstract for a PME poster session through the AMS abstract submission portal no later than Tuesday, September 26, 2023
  • Complete the application for the travel grant, including abstract number, no later than Tuesday, October 17, 2023 (11:59 p.m. ET); 
  • Be enrolled as (1) a full-time undergraduate student or (2) a full-time graduate student who has accumulated fewer than 30 credits at a U.S. institution; and
  • Be a member of PME.

The award amounts are anticipated to be up to $1,200 to defray travel, housing, and subsistence expenses. Applications are especially encouraged from students from groups that have been underrepresented in the mathematical sciences and from those with need for travel support.

Where to apply

Applications are only accepted online through MathPrograms.org. An account (free for applicants) must be created in order to apply. 

One application should be made by each individual who is requesting support, whether they are in a group project or a one-person project. Every co-presenter must submit their own travel grant application.  

Please note: Travel grant applicants must submit their abstract and obtain an abstract number prior to applying for a travel grant.

THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS TUESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2023,  BY 11:59 P.M. EASTERN TIME.

JMM is the largest mathematical gathering in the world, and a great opportunity for students to...

  • Learn new mathematics
  • Network with other students and professionals
  • Find out about job opportunities
